A2K and Eagle Point’s Top 5 Benefits of Upskilling Employees
Every company wants skilled employees – but how many are truly invested in helping their staff reach that next level? There might be some managers that are doubtful about spending valuable time and resources on more education, but the advantages of upskilling employees greatly make up for the costs.
Enhanced workplace productivity, empowered innovation, happier employees and customers, employee retention and attracting new talent are A2K and Eagle Point’s top 5 benefits of upskilling employees which we will take a closer look at in this blog.
5. Enhanced Workplace Productivity
Errors and setbacks are sometimes unavoidable on projects. Delays and errors also happen for preventable reasons at other times. Perhaps an employee did not have the correct training or the right resources to solve a certain problem, so they had to spend valuable time asking their coworkers or look for answers on the internet. Maybe even a task took a whole day when it could have potentially taken a few hours with a more efficient process. Maintaining an employee’s skills up to date and even ahead of the curb helps ensure that they are always working at their most efficient state.
4. Empowered Innovation
A varied set of ideas and perspectives have the potential to completely transform an organisation’s success. Providing your employees with the right education gives them the tools and the confidence to speak their voices when an idea arises. It could be from improving an internal workflow or coming up with a new product development that could potentially help clients, you never know who will come up with the next big idea.
3. Happier Employees and Customers
People feel valued and are happier when their voices are heard, their goals supported and encouraged. Giving your employees the right educational opportunities can assist in achieving all of the above. Happier employees can produce better work results, which means your clients will also be more satisfied and have an excellent experience with your company.
2. Employee Retention
When employees enjoy the company’s culture and feel capable and successful at their jobs, they will have greater job satisfaction. Happy and satisfied employees have less chance of leaving and finding other opportunities. According to a survey from the Harris Poll, 70% of employees said they would likely leave an employer that did not provide sufficient learning and development opportunities. This would also allow a potential promotion from within, saving valuable time and money compared to hiring and training new staff members.
1. Attract new Talent!
High achievers and top performers lean towards organisations where their goals can thrive. Having and showing direction with your company’s learning and growth culture is a great opportunity to stand out when looking to expand your team. Your organisation can be a destination where employees can hone their skillsets, accelerate their career, and potentially pursue senior roles in the future. Investing in education and staff development sends a message that your organisation is thinking about the employee’s and the company’s long-term success, not just the short-term.
